Aurora Solar Technologies Provides Corporate Update and Announces Private Placement

NORTH VANCOUVER, BRITISH COLUMBIA--(Marketwired - June 7, 2016) -

THIS PRESS RELEASE IS NOT FOR DISTRIBUTION TO THE UNITED STATES NEWSWIRE SERVICES OR FOR DISSEMINATION IN THE UNITED STATES

Aurora Solar Technologies Inc. ("Aurora") ("Company") (TSX VENTURE:ACU)(OTCBB:AACTF)(FRANKFURT:A82), a leader in inline measurement and control technology for the photovoltaic manufacturing industry is experiencing a significant increase in both solicited and unsolicited requests for quotations for its Decima 3T with Veritas Software from industry leaders manufacturing high-efficiency solar cells. As producers manufacture more complicated cell structures, existing off-line and in-line measurement systems cannot measure and control the process necessary to produce these cells. Aurora's Decima 3T unique, infrared profiling system is capable of accurately measuring these formulas and is poised to win orders at a premium over anything presently in the market. The company's growing sales pipeline for multi-unit orders of existing products has the potential to bring the company to cash flow positive operation in the next 12-18 months. The company also has solidified the first customer for its end-to-end quality control system which will ship in the fall and be used to optimize each step of the manufacturing process, further increasing the yield of the highest performing cells coming off the line.

In order to deliver on these opportunities, the company announces that it will undertake a non-brokered private placement of 5,000,000 units ("Units") at a price of $0.15 per Unit for gross proceeds of up to $750,000. Each Unit will consist of one common share (a "Share") and one purchase warrant (a "Warrant"), with each Warrant entitling the holder to purchase one additional Share (a "Warrant Share") for a period of 24 months at a price of $0.25 per Warrant Share.

The Company will be paying a finder's fee consisting of a cash fee of 7% and finder's warrants to purchase units equal to 7% of the units placed.

All securities will be subject to a 4-month hold period. All funds will be used for general working capital purposes. Completion of the private placement is subject to the approval of the TSX Venture Exchange.
